Despite a rocky couple of weeks following his controversial interview in GQ, Phil Robertson and his family seemed to be in good spirits during yesterday’s Christmas festivities. The Duck Dynasty stars even celebrated a milestone over the holiday, as the embattled patriarch finally gave his wife of 50 years, Miss Kay, a wedding ring.
Phil and Kay’s granddaughter Sadie Robertson — the teenage aspiring model and daughter of Willie — took to Twitter yesterday to show off her grandmother’s new jewelry.
“After 50 years of marriage Papaw Phil finally gave Mamaw Kay a wedding ring for Christmas,” Sadie writes below a photo of her camo-clad grandpa pointing to his wife’s finger, as she grins in a festive holiday sweater.
But wait, this is the first ring that Kay has ever received from Phil? We thought marriage between a man and a woman was priority!
It’s an interesting move, timing-wise, as the duck call mogul came under fire recently for voicing his opinion that homosexuality is “not logical.” And just days ago, Phil conducted a bible study where he emphasized the importance of marriage between a man and a woman: “If you're a man, find yourself a woman, marry them and keep your sex right there.”
Perhaps this is Phil’s way of sticking it to those who disagree with his opinions, particularly A&E, the network that airs Duck Dynasty. They chose to suspend the show’s main star after his remarks became public last week.
What do you think of Phil giving a ring to Kay in the midst of the controversy? Let us know below.
